Anthony “Lucky" Luckadeau is a rancher. He owns the Bar M ranch. Some people would call him lucky. He wasn’t born ranching but he has done well for himself so far. Though he may be lucky, he is not lucky when it comes to love. Beau thinks it is about time he settles down and starts a family. He plans to pop the question to Amanda, a schoolteacher that he has been dating for some time.

Jim Torres’s ranch, The Lazy Z, neighbor’s the Bar M. He had an accident and is recovering but needs help on the

Definitely not my cup of tea. I apologize if I offend anyone, but it is just my honest thought.

For me, the book was so boring, I even skipped it up. The idea was good, I was tempted by the summary, but I was greatly disappointed by the outcome. The writing style was really confusing, and there were lots of plot hole. One time, Beau didn't remember Amanda, but he remembered Milli. What kind of amnesia was that? Or was there no amnesia at all? But then, why did he not recognize his own fiancee? Wh
Milli is betrayed by her fiance, finds his cheating while she has been saving herself for him. She heads to her friend's wedding shortly after determined to get back at him. Milli runs into Beau, who is obviously much more inebriated than she is. Milli heads to his trailer with him for a night of love making that makes her see stars, still she leaves in the middle of the night. 2 years later Milli's grandfather has hip surgery and needs help on his ranch, so she heads there with her daughter Kat ...more
I've been suffering from a drama withdrawal and was looking for some distractions when I saw this book under a recommendation here after rating a few other novellas I've manged to finished before this.

What got me interested was the actually the third book in the series, but since I don't like starting a series out of its place, I decided I like the plot of this one enough to give it a try.

The pacing was a little slow for me. I hoped the story picked up, but it was pretty steady throughout. What

For the last two years Beau Luckadeau has been dreaming of a black-haired angel who he's sure he met and had a romantic encounter with but everyone tells him he dreamed it during a drunken binge. Turns out he wasn't dreaming after all. Milli Torres has returned to her grandfather's Oklahoma ranch and literally stumbles upon Beau who promptly accuses her of cutting his fence and letting his prize bull out. The sparks literally fly between them but Beau doesn't remember her at all.

This is a fun r
I got this ebook free from Amazon.
This book had a pretty good beginning. Struggling single mom disturbed by her past, meets a dense headed guy who is good looking.
The writing was okay but as the book went on it got progressively worse. The language between the characters was incredibly cheesy. No one talks like that. They started to sound like twelve year olds forcing swear words into conversation to sound cool. Lame. And If I ever see the word Darlin' again, I'm gonna pull my hair out. Freakin
Ok, so I have read rave reviews of this author and her cowboy romances. Gotta tell you though, I didn't get any real romance feelings out of this book. The heroine, Milli, seems like she has a mental disease. One minute she's angry, the next she's in love, the next she doen't know what to feel. The hero, Beau, calls her a bitch several times, and it just didn't feel right. I didn't feel any chemistry between ANY of the characters, let alone the two who are suppose to be falling in love. Guess it ...more
I'll be honest and admit that this wasn't one of my first picks when presented with the list from Sourcebooks. Cowboys aren't really my "thing"... But after reading Carolyn Brown's writing, I couldn't wait to pick up the next Lucky book. Good thing that was in my TBR pile already!

Milli is sassy. Just like I like 'em. Surprise, surprise! She also has a secret, one that she can't tell Beau. Who happens to be stubborn. And cranky. Perfect for the repartee that just rolls off the pages in this enter
This is tricky for me to review and rate because I liked the hero and I liked the setting. The reverse romance was an interesting premise. Buuuut I never finished the story and doubt I'll ever return. For some reason, at 81% it has completely lost its appeal and I just no longer care about the story or the characters. I get it and I'm ready to move on.

I might try another book from the series in the future but I'm in no rush. This might have something to do with the length of this novel (it seem

I didn't like this book at all. I think the story itself has potential, but the writing was horrible. Had to skim through the book just to get to the end, and even that took almost too much effort.
It was a night of passion that has always haunted "Lucky Beau" Luckadeau. The mysterious beauty he seduced at a cousin's wedding disappeared. He's always been lucky at cards, lucky with cattle, and lucky with land, but he's never been lucky in love.
Now Milli Torres has come to southern Oklahoma to help out on her grandfather's ranch. A cut fence and a big, mean Angus bull in the pasture are bad enough, but then she looks up and sees Beau Luckadeau. Great God Almighty, how did he get from Louisia

Anthony "Beau" Luckyadeau has been having dreams of the same woman for over two years. Back then he had a one night stand and fell head over heels in love. He searched for his dark haired beauty but could never find her. He's never been lucky with women, so he's hoping his upcoming marriage to socialite Amanda will turn his luck around.

Milli Torres is visiting her grandparent's cattle ranch to help out for the summer while her Poppy recuperates from a busted knee. So when she lays eyes on Beau n
Beau has a drunken memory from two years ago about his dream girl 'Amelie'. The granddaughter of his neighbor shows up for the summer with her 14 month old daughter that looks remarkably just like Beau. Beau has plans to get married and fill his ranch with little children (probably boys as there are a lot of males in his family) so that night he has plans to ask his gold digger girlfriend to get engaged to be married.

I always adore a stand alone heroine, especially if they weren't blondes... Gak tau kenapa tapi saya suka banget sama Milli Torres, tokoh perempuan di buku ini. Keras kepala, teguh pada pendirian, tau yang dibutuhkan, berani mengambil risiko, punya banyak bakat. Pokoke wokelah. Terutama saat dia nonjok siapa pun yang berani nyebut dia bitch. That was one of my favorite action. Salah satu bagian lain yang gue suka adalah waktu si Katy bilang, "Ride, peas." baik sama Milli, sama si Beau, atau sama ...more
A vision of beauty and grace has followed Beau Luckadeau's memories since a drunken one night stand had him waking up to an empty bed. Two years later, Beau has given up hope that he will ever see her again and has decided to move on with his life. When he finds what he believes is a puny ranch hand by a cut fence on his land, he blows a fuse only to find that is a hot tempered brunette with a rifle pointed at him and a bit of shooting in her wake, who looks remarkably like the woman of his drea ...more
Lucky in Love is the first book that I've read by Carolyn Brown.

I loved the storyline - a one-night stand at a wedding in another state led to a baby on the way. 2 years later, Milla shows up at her grandparents' ranch to help out for the summer while her grandfather recovers from surgery and she meets the neighbor rancher and guess who?

I loved the characters - Milla and Beau are both lovable, separate and on their own. Milla's grandparents were great - her grandmother was very quick to pick up

I knew from the second I read the first part of this book that it was going to keep my interest because the characters had so much life to them. This is the first book in Ms. Brown’s “Lucky Series” and once you read this one, you’ll definitely want to read the rest!

Beau Luckadeau is a relatively lucky guy, except when it comes to love. When the novel begins, he is involved with this horrible woman who is definitely not his type, but poor Beau just doesn’t realize it. Although he claims to love A
Meet Milli Torres, a spit fire of a heroine, mommy to a wonderful little baby girl, and knows a thing or two about a ranch. When she goes to Oklahoma to help out with her grandparent's ranch while her grandfather is recovering from surgery, she wants to clear her mind, relax and enjoy the summer. But as luck would have it, she runs into Beau Luckadeau, a man she never thought nor cared to see ever again after a passionate night a couple of years ago in Louisiana.

He's best known as " Lucky in Ev

I'm sure someone else already commented on this, but Texarkana is NOT in LOUISIANA! I'm fairly easy to please, but this book disappointed me in so many ways. Twice, I thought it was close to the end, but then it kept going. The dialog was pretty unbelievable, as well.

I tried to like this book. I did. I've read a few other Carolyn Brown books that I liked. This one? Not so much. I'm not crazy about the "we've meet before, but didn't date/broke-up", etc storyline. I don't like Millie- sorry, I don't want to read about a heroine that doesn't use protection the FIRST time she has sex because she THOUGHT SHE COULDN'T GET PREGNANT THE FIRST TIME (and I realize there are people out there who subscribe to this theory, I just don't want to read about it). I want my h ...more
3 1/2 STARS

A sweet western romance with Likable characters and heart warming storyline.

I really enjoyed this story, Beau was certainly a hunny and Millie a fiery red pepper lol.

I would recomened this read to all whom like a western romance filled with wonderfully scripted characters that will not only make you laugh but swoon.

Setting was drafted well, and the plot outlined and put forth well. A happily ever after any reader will surely enjoy !

Liked the way it started.

jumped right in to the completion of the lives of each character. last two chapters were really slow. story had ended 3 chapters before.
Not my cup of tea.

Didn't like it. It was a pain to read. Didn't like the way it was written. Though I think more skilled writer could have written and used that idea very well.

Milli...i got the impression that she was not the most even-tempered person around. She had no control over her temper what's so ever. Like non. She just started to shoot people. I know she was supposed to be the intependent woman, no mans doormat etc. She was just 1 minute she was happy, then angry, then run
This is the first book of hers I stumbled across and was drawn in from the start by the feisty heroine when she pulled a rifle on mister wonderful and threatened to relieve him of a few functioning parts. She was just as bull headed as he was and I had to find out how this was all going to work and come about.

The story it self is familiar by other authors...however, Ms. Brown did a good job of making this believable for the most part and laugh out loud funny in some parts.

It held my interest a
Great book. Read this before Getting Lucky.
Maybe more like 2.5 stars. This book was a unique blend of contemporary setting with historical themes that just didn't really work all that well for me. Both the heroine and hero got on my nerves with their archaic views of sex, marriage and (even at times), general roles. I remember thinking at about the half-way point that this book was a little manic-depressive in that the characters and even the situations in the book had drastic mood swings. If all of Brown's books are like this, I don't k ...more
I really enjoyed this book. It had a plot that was not predictable. The characters were believable and likable. I did not like the style of writing in some places. I'd blame poor editing. The story would bounce around from one character's thoughts to another's without any warning. I was confused a few times. Also the main character puts on sandals as she leaves for a party and comes home and takes off her boots. I still liked the book though.
